Clean Up Your Room - I think this applies to everyone no matter their age. For you little or teen Speakies get busy before your parents ground you.
National Shrimp Day - These guys are one of my favorite seafood dishes. Fried, shrimp cocktail, shrimp on the barbie, shrimp sushi and Fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp. You name the shrimp dish and I'll eat it.
Have a great day and weekend and enjoy some shrimp.
